Retro Run


The Silverstone Classic RetroRun is a road run for classic cars (pre-1997 or those of special interest) that takes place as an integrated part of the event. 

The RetroRun starts on the Saturday morning of the Silverstone Classic (29 July) from the magnificent nearby Stowe House, and participants can opt to take part in a 80-mile (Route B) or 110-mile route (Route A), carefully selected to provide a fantastic driving experience which takes in special places of interest along the route, before reaching its conclusion right in the very heart of the event on Saturday afternoon with an exclusive, dedicated area inside the Circuit for displaying all the RetroRun cars.

The following day, RetroRunners then have a unique opportunity to drive their cars around the iconic Grand Prix track in a revered Parade lap on the Sunday (30 July).

Entry to the RetroRun includes:

  • Two adult three-day event tickets for the Silverstone Classic (Already bought your tickets? Don’t worry, there is an option for you to buy a RetroRun add-on).*
  • An ‘infield’ vehicle pass giving special access to a display area with other RetroRunners within the heart of the event for all three days.
  • Entry to Stowe House with a welcoming tea or coffee on arrival.
  • Visit to Coventry Transport Museum for two people plus refreshments.
  • A ‘Tulip’ style Road Book for your chosen route.
  • Any entry fees associated with the places of interest visited as part of the route for two people.*
  • Rally plaque for your car.
  • A unique opportunity to drive your car around the iconic Grand Prix track in a revered Parade lap on the Sunday of the event (30 July).


Full details on the RetroRun, including details of Route A and Route B for 2017 are now available in our RetroRun brochure which is available for download here. If, once you've taken a look at our brochure, you have any further questions relating to RetroRun, please email: RetroRun@silverstoneclassic.com.

The RetroRun package is available at the advance price of £236 but places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. Camping or motorhome hire can be added as an option when making your booking.

*If there’s more than two of you, just buy the additional admission tickets needed to enter the Silverstone Classic (more details here) and pay any incremental fee for accessing the places of interest on the day (we’ll obviously let you know what this will be in advance).

Please note: RetroRun is a fun drive experience (no aspect of it is a speed event nor a competition).
